Chrissy Teigens Dreamy Rice Krispie Treats

Have You Earned Your Tomorrow

By Edgar Guest

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through; Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along? Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng? Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way, Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?

Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast, That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?

Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say, You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

The beautiful and talented Chrissy Teigen is at it once again, taking our favorite childhood treats to the next level. As many of you already know, she’s not only the wife of singer John Legend, but she’s also the author of The Cravings popular cookbook and is always sharing exciting recipes together with her adorable little girl, Luna. This time around, she’s got something seriously epic up her sleeve to share with her fans on Instagram, and that’s her Rice Krispies treats with a special twist.

Her Rice Krispies treats follow the original recipe for the most part – but she’s taken it upon herself to make some dreamy additions to make this classic treat even better than we remember. Her first secret is to use less cereal than the original calls for – and in fact, she only uses half what’s usually called for in order to make these sweet treats all that much gooier (because that’s where all the fun is, right?).  Her second secret that she’s revealed is that she actually uses much more than the suggested amount of butter for the recipe. She hasn’t specified how much exactly, but our best guess is that it’s around five tablespoons, rather than the recommended three.

 

And her for the third secret to truly top off this perfect recipe? She keeps some of the marshmallows aside in order to add them at the end to make them even gooier than you imagined.  But just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any better, she also adds peanut butter chips. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, then you better get that checked out by a professional.  Chrissy and Luna also try to avoid flattening these treats by not pressing them into the pan – this allows them to stay as fluffy as can be! If you were considering cutting down on treats this summer, now is clearly not the time.
